We’ve got our hands on a first official preview clip of Lean on Pete, the upcoming drama movie written and directed by Andrew Haigh and starring Steve Buscemi, Charlie Plummer, Chloe Sevigny, Travis Fimmel, and Steve Zahn:
Lean on Pete – The kid is a natural
“Charley (Charlie Plummer) is a 15-yo lost soul, pent up in a fleabag Portland apartment with his abrasive father. He goes looking for a summer job and ends up meeting Del (Steve Buscemi), a grizzled horseman kicking around the smalltime circuit training and racing quarter horses with his partner, Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny), a jockey. In no time they become an inseparable trio, and Charley discovers a genuine love for the animals. He grows particularly attached to a failing racehorse named Lean On Pete. But when he discovers that his beloved horse has reached the end of his racing days and is due to be disposed of by the unsentimental and practical Del, Charley ends up on a cross-country adventure through the beautiful mountains and plains of the interior.”
